Sorry I have been hiding this week. I have a manic week with an emergency dash to MILs after she had a fall on Wednesday evening so I missed posting on Wednesday. MIL is fine with a dented pride, bump on her forehead and a shiner of a black eye. No long term damage but it was a bit of a worry at the time. The out of hours GP could not be bothered to get off his overpaid a**e and we had to call the paramedics out. The Paramedic was a very nice man and told us we did the right thing. It is no wonder the ambulance service is like it is if GPs won't do their job!
I went out lunchtime yesterday to spend my voucher at the Art Shop on some paints, art journals and spatulas. I am looking forward to getting my hands dirty this weekend.
Right onto today's post I needed to make two birthday cards for two very special peeps and decided to dig out one of my first dies I bought when I had my Big Shot all those years ago.
I embossed the background card part way with my SU folder and then scored two narrow lines and placed snippets of ribbon across. I had a rummage through my Snippets drawer and came up with these. The spotty was left over from a scrapbook layout. The pieces below were from the spray box.
I tried using silicone on these cards to give a layered look. Never again! I was forever cleaning up my little messes!
The rest of the greens were all from various projects and the orange backgrounds pieces were from a very old pack I bought many years ago. I placed corners on the one above but decided to use up some sparkly spots for the others.
I even decorated the interiors with some teeny tiny tulips too but I have forgotten to upload that photo! Duh! All the sentiments were done with Hero Arts and the inside sentiment was my favourite Penny Black. As usual I made four cards, two to use and two for my box.
I am just going to sneak in to the Snippets Playground before Miss shuts the gates in the morning and while the mischievous ones are asleep. Have a great weekend y'all!
